It's a Small World (or The Robot Play)

Available for Production!

Anne (an engineer in recovery) and Cyrus (a former coffee maker, now robot poet) take the long trip from Disney World to Canandaigua to get Cyrus back home to Anne’s childhood best friend, Adam. Along the way, the duo meet other people and small kitchen appliances that are just as lost as they are while they try to discover what home truly is.
